[Tutor] Editing Data in Non Versioned SDE Using python With An Update Cursor

I have a python script that calculates  x coordinates , y coordinates for a
point geometry that sits within a feature dataset of an SDE (SQL Express).
The script worked fine on a file geodatabase however when it runs on the SDE
feature class, it stalls at the updateCursor function.


"ERROR: 999999: Error executing function....Objects in the class cannot be
updated outside an edit session [FSB.DBO.Structures]"  


The script breaks on updCursor.updateRow(row):


workspace = arcpy.env.workspace ="insertworkspace"
edit = arcpy.da.Editor(workspace)

edit.startEditing(False, True)

updCursor = arcpy.UpdateCursor(projectedFC,"", spatialRef)
for row in updCursor:
    pnt = row.Shape.getPart(0)
    row.POINT_X = pnt.X
    row.POINT_Y = pnt.Y

del updCursor, row






If anyone has any information, ideas or input on editing data in non
versioned SDE with a update cursor using python it would be greatly
